She is housebroken, leash trained and knows several commands. Owner reports that Rumba is a registered emotional service animal. Rumba is described as outdgoing, good with adults teenagers and other dogs. Rumba is said to be good with mature older kids, but tends to avoid younger children, her owner believes it is because their quick sudden movements make her nervous. Rumba is not aggressive. Rumba's owner reports she 'Initially exhibits separation anxiety- loves people- adapts quickly but no longer fits with my spouse and his routine -constant source of argument and frustration and I plan on staying married a very long time is main reason to seek rehome..Rumba is very smart- learns her environment- can find her way out of any yard.' Can anyone help Rumba? **Owner Surrender Disclaimer: These are blind and visually impaired dogs who are living in homes, but their owners can no longer keep them.
